Summer Workshop, 6 days in NH with the Grand Central Academy

Erik Koeppel "Glory of the Presidential Range" 14 x 24 in. Oil on Canvas

Lauren Sansaricq and I will be once again teaching a workshop alongside the Hudson River Fellowship in Jackson, NH.


Techniques of the Hudson River School with Erik Koeppel & Lauren Sansaricq in NH

July 10 - 15, 2014 (6 instructed days. Instructors alternate days)
$775 ($400/deposit)

Location: Jackson, NH in the White Mountain National Forest

Limit: 12 students 
Deposit due upon registration. Final balance by June 2nd.
Regardless of your level of experience our goal as instructors will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting. In this workshop we will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great American Landscape Painters of the 19th Century. By painting in locations actually portrayed by the Hudson River School, we will discover a deeper understanding of how these artists approached the challenge of rendering the landscape before them.
Although we encourage painting, students wishing to learn landscape drawing for the entire 6 days are welcome. We will address the following: compositional sketching, light and atmosphere in grisaille, outdoor painting in color.
